Water Pollution

Challenge #19 in the WaterWorld series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
An extremely widespread and actual theme, especially photographically. Its appearance comes from various sources. To name just main ones, there is lack of education and/or responsibility (unawareness of consequences), criminal negligence ("not my job" or "it's cheaper than recycling"), intentional (as in "For Fun & Profit) and natural (as a result of some cataclysm or other). Add your 100 views! PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES CAREFULLY. I hate having to disqualify an otherwise interesting photo just because of an oversight.

Salamina wrecks

1st place
I shot this at Salamina island, Greece, very close to the monument of the Battle of Salamina, the famous battle of the Alliance of Greek city-states against the Persian Empire in September 480 BC. Unfortunately the whole place is full of ship-wrecks and every kind of scrap (though this is undeniably interesting in photographic terms...)
